How do I plan a specific journey?
Due to Coronavirus, planning engineering work is harder than usual. This means online journey planners may only be updated at short notice.
Our timetables will not include alterations relating to planned engineering work until closer to the date of operation.
In order to keep you informed we will continue to advise you here when engineering work alterations have been updated. As soon as the information is available, details of work taking place will be advertised on our engineering work page here. Information on when online journey planners are currently correct up to are available here.
Availability of advance fares
For details of the availability of advance fares, please visit the advance ticket availability information here. If your pre-booked journey is changed, for example the time is amended, then you can either continue to travel on the revised timetable or apply for a refund.
Short notice alterations
There may be short notice cancellations during this period so check Service Disruption online before leaving for the station. We will update our live departures and our service updates as soon as we can.
Our timetable from 22 February
We have introduced a new, reduced timetable – to better match demand.
The current timetable focuses train services on early morning, late evening, and peak times. A smaller timetable will also ensure that services are as reliable as possible for people travelling at a time when railway staff, like everyone, are affected by coronavirus.
Our priority is to provide a safe and reliable service for key workers who are keeping our country running through this difficult time. We will continue to review train services to ensure we best meet demand in the future.
The new timetable is now showing in journey planners, such as www.nationalrail.co.uk. However, please ensure you check every journey before you travel, as some overnight and weekend engineering works may not show until one week before.
Full timetables are available below.
